Chocolate & Kale Protein Smoothie

I caught my kids’ cold. Ugh! Just when I thought I wasn’t going to get the bug…it hit me. But I am determined to keep working out because (fingers crossed) maybe it will help kick this cold!

I forced myself went to yoga, came home and decided that I had to make a smoothie. Smoothies cure all, right?! (I’m sort of on a green smoothie kick – if you couldn’t tell from THIS post a couple weeks ago…) I had a bag of kale sitting in the fridge and I decided to improvise a little.

Who would have thought kale and chocolate would go so well together?! This smoothie was honestly SO tasty. Definitely didn’t taste healthy! :) I can’t wait to make it again! Kale is full of vitamins and antioxidants, add in the protein from the peanut butter & protein powder, a little banana and BAM! A super healthy, filling and delicious smoothie! Perfect for breakfast, after a workout or just because. Give it a try and let me know what you think!

    Ah my 2 favorites things in the foodie world: kale and chocolate – seriously. And in a shake no less! Yum. This reminds me of a Shamrock Shake I made with spinach, almond milk, frozen banana, and peppermint extract the other day. I’m on a smoothie kick and will definitely be trying this one soon! :) Happy spring!

    So, I tried this smoothie this morning, but made a change:

    1 TBSP almond butter (because it better for me)

    1/4 c aprox. pumpkin flax granola (natures’ path)

    1 TBSP Flax seed

    I was very good. I even got my DH (dear husband) to eat/drink a vegetable. Normally, DH would not touch Kale.

    Thanks for posting,

    Priscilla
